The LP DAAC is pleased to announce the availability of Goddard’s LiDAR, Hyperspectral, and Thermal Imager (G-LiHT) Canopy Height Model (GLCHMT) and Canopy Height Model KML (GLCHMK) data products.

The G-LiHT mission utilizes a portable, airborne imaging system that aims to simultaneously map the composition, structure, and function of terrestrial ecosystems. G-LiHT primarily focuses on a broad diversity of forest communities and ecoregions in North America, mapping aerial swaths over the Conterminous United States, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.

A citation containing the DOI for each G-LiHT Canopy Height Model dataset is provided below.
